My favorite things from the Fourth of July

The Fourth of July has always been an important holiday in my Dad’s family, because of the birthday’s we have around it! My grandpa and my aunt!So this year we did our fourth order mystery dinner. The fourth allows my whole family to get together. It also allows us to celebrate two amazing peoples’ birthdays. Most importantly though it is about celebrating all the freedom we have here in the United States.img_3398

We have a good picture!

Then there is a picture that we caption… There has been a murder at a Cuban Resort!My Cousin Max and I, I played a waitress and he got to play the millionaire… Who do you think got the better gig?

I don’t know about you but I really love sunsets!

Our sermon for the week before the Fourth of July was also very meaningful to me. It was all about how God gives us freedom from expectations. How the only opinion that matters is God’s and nobody else. I have a hard time with that and sometimes I make the wrong decisions because of it or the fear of it. But, God has a plan through it all, loves me through it all, and is trying to free me from it. Just know that God can free you from ANY expectation you have of yourself or someone has for you that is burdensome or not your true calling.
